My New Shop!

Welcome to my new shop!

great horned owl

When we first moved to the country, we would see these magnificent birds often. The first time I saw one standing on the ground beyond our yard, I wasn’t sure what it was. It looked like a cat, but much larger. It’s gotten rather crowded out here (for the country) and I guess we humans [...]

mary gregory studio at the pecan street festival in austin

I will be here, The Pecan Street Festival (now known as 6th St), in Austin Tx this weekend, May 4th and 5th. I’ve never been before, as either a shopper or vendor, but it’s Austin, for Pete’s sake, the weather is expected to be lovely, live music, good food…how could it be anything but fun! Admission is free…come [...]

pretty moment

You know how some things are so pretty, they stop you in your tracks? That happens to me a lot.

gift wrap

When you live 30 miles from everywhere, you learn to use what you’ve got. I had an emergency gift-wrapping situation and not much time to come up with something special. Small kraft envelopes, burlap, my tiny prints on twill, and twine were laying around from other projects and just fit the bill. You could achieve the same [...]

>FlockThree on a Line Pear I’ve been in a whirlwind since August. Fig Marmalade, and all that goes along with it, has kept me busy. Anna and I went to High Point, NC in October and had a good show, met lots of great people and saw beautiful scenery. Now, to get ready for Dallas [...]

>fig marmalade {aprons}

> Fig Marmalade offers two types of aprons: full aprons, made of ticking stripe, and utility, or half aprons, made of natural twill. My paintings are printed on the pockets. Both make the job or chore more pleasant!

>fig marmalade {box prints}

> Another Fig Marmalade product…Box Prints. I print an image of my oil painting onto canvas and stretch it across a 4 inch deep wooden frame wrapped in jute webbing. A great way to add color and interest to a wall or shelf. Especially nice in a grouping. You know the saying, “The cobbler’s children [...]

>more pillows

> These two are large – 20 x 26 and 22 x 22 – and look great, if I do say so myself, on a sofa or bed.

>my new venture…

> I am launching a line of goods featuring my artwork! It will include pillows made of burlap and pillow ticking, purses and tote bags, aprons, cup towels and whatever-else tickles my fancy. I will officially launch in June at Dallas and Atlanta markets. Here’s a sneak peak: The paintings {this is my calf, Gingersnap} [...]

>nest

> Here’s a little sample of what I’ve been up to. David found this tiny nest on the ground (we’d never take one out of a tree…the birds sometimes reuse nests from year to year) and brought it to me to either paint or put in my “dead area” as he calls it. I call [...]
